“I had back surgery in December and was transferred to your facility for 8 weeks. Your therapists worked very hard in making my stay very productive and very agreeable with their positive encouragement and support. They contributed in making me stronger and ameliorated my walking strides. They work very hard, they are very dedicated to their patients and so happy when you are doing well. It is a pleasure to be around them. They give you the courage to move on.”
